    'Doomsday Clock' moves to 90 seconds to midnight as nuclear threat rises

    The "Doomsday Clock," created by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists to illustrate how close humanity has come to the end of the world, moved its "time" in 2023 to 90 seconds to midnight, 10 seconds closer than it has been for the past three years.
    ‚Äč
    Atomic scientists set the "Doomsday Clock" closer to midnight than ever before on Tuesday, saying threats of nuclear war, disease, and climate volatility have been exacerbated by Russia's invasion of Ukraine, putting humanity at greater risk of annihilation.

    Gaudeamus igitur and all that. No one gets out alive, so ultimately his doomsday predictions must come true.

    I've missed Harold's rantings on the radio the last couple of years; used to be the highlight of my evening drive home.

    And what are the odds that when this 'deadline' comes and goes, he'll finally shut his yap? :roll:

    "Oops, sorry, forgot to carry the 1 in that last calculation. Here, lemme run it again . . . uh . . . OK . . . got it! The world will end . . . um . . . in 11.4 BILLION years . . . oh... never ... mind."

    Yeah he's confusing himself with us. Betting against the end of the world is the safest bet there is.....for one obvious reason.

    well, OK, maybe it won't be tomorrow either (dang... now I have to figure out what to wear after all)

    I don't remember the year ( maybe it coincided with Y2K) but back when we had the last "rapture" alert and thousands of "believers" went to the mountaintops to be picked up, I had a chance encounter at a remote ferry crossing of a stream/river in western Oregon with a small group descending from the Armageddon no-show. The men were all riding tricked out $25,000 Harleys. Their "old ladies" and kids travelled in graffiti rich $800 bread vans with quilts dangling out the doors..
    They were sociable, if scruffy, guys and while we waited for the ferry admitted they did not really expect the rapture but went up the mountain for a little smoke and a lot of last-chance free love

    I wholeheartedly agree. Just not from the same end of the spectrum, probably :lol:
    This is where this whole thing should be left; and it makes everyone's point just fine.

    Be that as it may, I wouldn't come here and slam you for your beliefs, since people choose to believe what they choose to believe. If that is what your mind and heart tell you, well, it is what it is. I won't ridicule you for it, even if I disagree wholeheartedly with you about it.
    Where is this defensiveness coming from? Who is ridiculing you?
    I think the NBA doesn't have the same level of PED problem as the NFL or MLB and people ARE openly ridiculing me here, and I have no problem with that!!
